Description

This rich collection of tales paints a vivid portrait of our early beginnings, from the 1860s to the turn of the century. These stories bring to life the men and women who have left their mark on our history our forbears. Murray Moorhead (author of First in Arms) provides valuable insights into their relationships with Maori, their taming of the land and its consequences and the unknowing mistakes they made along the way. Settler?s Tales captures with great clarity the raging turbulence, the desperate pain, the simple joy and the bubbling excitement that was to shape a city. These are tales for all New Zealanders.
